Eastleigh nursery raises money for charity with pirate day

Children and staff at Yellow Dot Fair Oak Nursery in Eastleigh organised a pirate day earlier this week to raise money for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.

“It was great to see all of the children and staff enjoying themselves after arriving at the nursery in their pirate outfits,” said Nursery Manager Clare Ashton. “All of the money raised will go towards Bright Spaces.”

Set up in 2005, the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children’s sole purpose is to help children and families in crisis.  They achieve this by working with local community groups, shelters and with Bright Horizons clients to create Bright Spaces®, which are indoor and outdoor play spaces located in homeless shelters, domestic violence refuges and refugee centres.

The spaces are created in order to provide children and families in need with a special place to play, have fun and most of all feel safe.
